Staircases receive the brunt of everyday use, making them susceptible to wear and tear. Such damage will accumulate over the years and compromise the safety and integrity of your staircase. If you are housing large families, children or the elderly, it is time to consider staircase maintenance.
Treads are typically secured in place using bolts or channel settings. During installation, they are secured tightly in place to ensure that they are held firmly in place. Over time, long term usage will result in creaking, which signifies that the staircase structure has lost its integrity. In this case, your staircase specialist can assist in inspecting the staircase structure to troubleshoot the root cause of the problem. This will be followed by a remedial maintenance program catered to you. By then, your staircase specialist should have identified several problems that are bound to arise with old staircases. From there, you can make a decision on whether to overhaul the staircase or simply do some staircase maintenance work.
Tread Material Replacement
Depending on the material used, it is fairly typical for the tread material to wear out with time. For instance, wood is typically the favoured tread material for a house staircase. Depending on the quality of wood, it can either get better with time or completely deteriorate. In this case, a replacement is definitely necessary.
Railing, Post and Balustrade Maintenance
A loose railing, post or balustrade can pose a threat to the staircase user, especially when there are vulnerable family members such as the elderly living in the household. Make it a point to do routine maintenance on such components of the staircase to ensure the safety of your family.
